Following up their dance of devil marionettesGobby and contemporary artist Nicholas Buffon have teamed up once again for "Quickie," off 2014's Beats by Gobby (UNO NYC) a karaoke music video made as part of a touring artist karaoke series (Read: Young Artists Envision Karaoke Videos as Installation Art). 

In terms of spectacle and production, "Quickie," which premieres today on The Creators Project, skews towards the DIY avant-garde. It's more of a "needs to be heard and seen to be felt" kind of thing. Below, read a statement from Buffon, and watch the new music video below:

“Quickie” was shot in my mom’s garden in Seattle, WA. The snake moved in a couple months ago, while I was there taking care of my Father. It was partially shot on my cell phone and on a GOPRO. “Quickie” is a karaoke video and is part of a performative event at Red Bull Studios Gift Shop NYC. This is the Fourth video I've done with Gobby.

Beats by Gobby is out now on UNO NYC.
